Pink silk heavy embellished sari + 32“ blouse – preloved
This is a really heavy stunning sari made of silk chiffon and embellished pretty much all over with lots of really fine metallic thread embroidery work, diamante’ stones , beading, sequins and colourful metallic dhabka work. The sari itself weighs over 2kgs giving an indication of the amount of work on it. The reverse inside edge of the sari is encased in a fabric trim to prevent the embellishment on the borders snagging, there is some piling on this where it has rubbed against the embellishment however this is not seen when worn. The fall too will need replacing as it has come undone and has frayed a little.
This outfit weighs just under 3kg which gives you an idea of the amount of embellishment on it.
It comes with a short sleeved blouse that has similar work on it, however it also has some colour run and markings which will require clearing.
This cost £240 new.
